Yes, that may be.  The problem on the buildbot may be that the clean step
is not run when the compilation failed.  I'll try to clean up manually.

If PyObject_Unicode is #defined for backwards compatibility then the occurences
should not be changed, imo.  If the #definition is only a hack then it should
be changed.  I have no idea about the C - api compatibility plans for py3k.
